Dear Members


You are invited to join Nuno Da Silva Tang for this tour of the newly renovated Li Ka Shing Faculty of Medicine Main Building at the University of Hong Kong. An in-depth understanding of the design process behind the dramatic, light filled entry hall will be presented and we will also visit the Learning Commons, which was conceived as a fun and colorful “academic playground” for future doctors. This project was widely celebrated for providing learning spaces that emphasize student wellness, flexible learning and social interaction as fundamental parts of a medical education.

Speaker and Tour Leader


Nuno Da Silva Tang, Assoc. AIA


Born in Hong Kong, with a multicultural Chinese and Portuguese background, Nuno moved to Montreal, at age six, where he developed a passion for design and studied architecture at McGill University. Upon completing his studies he joined Louis Vuitton in Paris and created new designs for the brand’s boutiques. Having gained expertise in the luxury retail sector, Nuno returned to Hong Kong to re-connect with his roots and to practice architecture in a new context.

In 2017, he launched his own practice – Atelier Nuno Architects – and quickly developed an ability to provide thoughtful and inventive designs across a wide range of projects. He brings sensitivity to spaces that often go overlooked and applies a sophistication to environments in which we live, work, and learn.

In 2020, his design for the Li Ka Shing Medical School Lobby won a World Architecture Community Award and received both local and international attention.
